Missing History: Radiozero[edit]

The Radio Zero podcast (now at http://www.radiozero.us/) has been in existence since 1999 (https://web.archive.org/web/19990428132606/http://www.posterchildren.com/) with regular episodes in 2000/2001 (weekly — https://web.archive.org/web/20001203034900/http://www.posterchildren.com/) and semi-regular updates after. Radio Zero was created by Rick Valetin and Rose Marshack of the band Poster Children, already notable as Internet pioneers with one of the first blogs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_blogging#1994.E2.80.932001).

And the third-party source is? Other than OR, a lot of content producers had RealAudio files for download (Mark Bernay and Evan Doorbell been doing it since 1995[1]), lots of terrestrial radio broadcasters/personalities too -- but that does not a podcast make. -- dsprc [talk] 19:51, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Political Podcast Subsection Seems Misguided[edit]

I wouldn't be opposed to seeing political podcasts linked to in another part of the article but its placement in this article seems weird. It would seem to imply, given its placement that a political podcast is an entirely new medium of podcast instead of just a specific genre. I will likely remove this section and find a way to work it in elsewhere (maybe a common genres section, who knows) unless there's major opposition to this proposal here. Cheers!

Agree, it's a genre not a variant. Snori (talk) 21:20, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Good idea to move it where it works better.--Tomwsulcer (talk) 22:08, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Thy not-so-daily bread[edit]

Broadcast redirects to broadcasting, while podcasting redirects to podcast. The implication here seems to be that once upon a time broadcasting was breadworthy (aka a notable profession), whereas podcasting has never been (just a bunch of piss poor peasants peddling pea pods). Maybe this is all fine. Just saying. (Yes, I know—that's everyone's favourite Hallmark card of passive-aggressiveness). But still, worth thinking about. — MaxEnt 20:17, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
